Thanks to the death of my laptop and a last minute wedding invite, I’ve just spent $1000 I didn’t necessarily have to spare
But on the upside, within the week I’ll have a new computer and a purdy red dress:
It’s from Igigi. I was very nearly going to order a classic but cliched black lace over nude dress by Adrianna Papell via Nordstrom but my mom helped me realize it was mad boring so I went for a slightly more exciting choice. Hopefully I can figure out how to accessorize it on the cheap.
I’ve just got this growing sense of fatalism that I’ll never find and fall in love with someone that’s a feminist and has sexy hands (my two ultimate requirements), and that instead I’m going to continue to be alone for the rest of my life. There’s all this weird pressure from my mom about being single, and I really need to establish and enforce better boundaries about that whole thing but I don’t even know how to begin.
Plus my laptop’s video card just crapped out on me (I think I burned it out playing Downton Abbey on the big TV) and now all I have is my netbook and one of my eyelids had already developed this annoying twitch and using this tiny screen isn’t helping. And my gums hurt and so on and so on. I’m behind in applying to grad school. What else is new? I don’t have my shit together.
I know, I know. Manifest positivity. Nobody likes a sad sack.
I’m presuming there’s something good available from someone like Leslie Kinzel, Marianne Kirby or Kate Harding? All of whom I find to be generally great if imperfect like us all. I’d prefer to support a WOC but honestly I just need whatever the best basic bible on FA is. I’m going to research after this but I’d really like any opinions.
